If you go to the PS website, it will tell you the specifications required. Off the top of my head that looks ok, but just check the site to be sure

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful5.0 out of 5 stars Great hard drive., July 7, 2013By Jayme (Louisiana) - See all my reviewsThis review is from: Seagate 1TB Solid State Hybrid Drive SATA 6Gbps 64MB Cache 2.5-Inch ST1000LM014 (Personal Computers)

Bought this for the PS3. Not only did it add a cool terabyte to my memory, but it also shortened loading times and improved game fluidity during high possessing situations. I would definitely recommend this to upgrade your PS3, I'm sure you would enjoy it.

Heard mixed things about the RPM for ps3 drives, most say it barely helps and 5400rpm is the best to get. Edit* I see this is a hybrid at 5400rpm anyway, never mind.

I thought about upgrading my hdd for PS+ also, but later decided not to just on the fact of the second you stop paying the PS+ bill all those gb's of games automatically stop working. Seems pointless spending money to save money too me.

Don't put an ssd in a ps3. It doesn't provide the same benefit as putting one in a pc. It makes games load faster by a second or 2, and that's it.

But yes, any 2.5" sata will work

Your best bet would probably be a 7200 RPM laptop drive if you don't mind paying the extra price. Even that doesn't improve load times more than 10%, though. A regular old 5400 RPM laptop drive would work just fine.

Samsung Spinpoint 5400 RPM 8 MB Cache

Spinpoints were known for being awesome drives back in the pre-Thailand flood days and I imagine they are still just as good.

Don't put an SSD in a PS3. The OS doesn't utilize it the same way as a modern OS does, causing it to eventually stop working due to read/write methods not being used properly.

If you want some speed increase you should buy 7200RPM HDD(2.5")

Also, you might want to avoid using a terabyte drive, this is mostly hearsay and rumour, but I continually hear that problems seam to pop up like weeds when you are using a terabyte drive, I would just stick to a 500GB, 7200/5400RPM drive.
